Anchorage

by Meme   Feb 5, 2013


Dear Admiral,

I wonder what color is the
water beneath, and what
are those stars drawing
in your sky tonight. And
I wonder which wind is
caressing your face, and
which sun is brightening
your eyes.

And also tell me, how come
these thousand unstamped
letters keep finding me, but
never allowing me to find you!

Where are you now?
.
.
Sailing amidst the seas of my
doubts? Or steering your
helm towards the unknown?

--

Please! An address is all I ask.

Or let my heart summon yours
to my shores, let your soul be
anchored with mine, and let me
be your destination..

Sincerely,
your final harbor..

    I felt, too, this was a tender write. The wonder and curiosity gives off such innocence to the reader and I honestly can't help but smile when you ask "Where are you now?". This write soothes me when reading, and it also reminds me of when we are searching for ourselves, wondering where we will go, where we've come from. The creativity in beginning with "Dear Admiral" and ending with "Sincerely, your final harbor" just warmed my heart....what sincerity. If this person could rest with you and know your heart is home, than that would be all that would matter in life. Wonderful!
